I took about box cuttings in early autumn, putting them in these 2 litre pots.
I knocked one pot out this afternoon to check progress and was pleased to see some good root growth. out of 22 plants, just two had not sprouted roots.
I'm going to wait at least three weeks to pot on the remaining c80 plants so that the roots have added some extra growth.
I bought 40 plants last spring of which about 15 of them were hit hard with box blight. I've lost three plants so far but the remainder are showing signs of recovery.
I've been trialling my own organic spray treatment. It's too early to say if it's just been luck but the results are really pleasing.
